Learn More About Multi-Point Inspections At Sewell Subaru

Knowing when something is wrong with your vehicle is the first step to excellent car maintenance. One of the many ways you can ensure that your Subaru car, SUV, or wagon is running strong is to have it thoroughly checked out with a multi-point inspection.

What Is A Multi-Point Inspection?

A multi-point inspection is similar to your yearly physical. Even if something isn't obviously wrong with your car, you'll want to have it inspected to make sure that there isn't a problem forming that you should be aware of. During a multi-point inspection, the certified Subaru technician will look at every part of your vehicle to catch anything that may be brewing under the hood.

What Does a Multi-Point Inspection Include?

While every brand and service center comes with a different collection of inspection items, most Subaru multi-point inspections include a closer look at:

  • Tire wear and condition
  • Drive shaft joint boots
  • Struts and shock absorber condition
  • Brake system
  • Engine and transmission
  • Drive-belts and hoses
  • Battery charge and condition
  • Air and fluid filters
  • Windshield and wiper blade condition
  • Headlights and other lights
  • Heater and A/C system
  • Restraint system
  • Instrument cluster for warnings
  • And much more!

How Long Does a Multi-Point Inspection Take?

As this is a very thorough inspection, it typically tends to last for a few hours. You'll want the technician to be meticulous and should expect to leave your car there for a couple of hours while they work.

How Much Does a Multi-Point Inspection Cost?

The cost of a multi-point inspection varies by brand and dealership. Some brands offer yearly complimentary multi-point inspections as do some warranties. We recommend checking with your dealership to see what type of warranty, special, or deal they may have.

How Will I Know What Needs To Be Replaced?

Once the multi-point inspection is finished, our technicians will provide you with a list of color-coded items that were checked out. These colors correspond to a chart that will inform you which items need to be repaired and which are good to go. The chart should look like:

  • Red - Repair as soon as possible
  • Yellow - Repair in the near future
  • Green - No repair required

When Should You Schedule A Multi-Point Inspection?

Most technicians recommend having your Subaru car, SUV, or wagon inspected once a year. This should alert you to any new problems that may arise and keep track of the routine maintenance that needs to be performed.
